Kolmanskop became one of the richest towns in Africa during a diamond boom in 1910, but all inhabitants deserted the town in the following decades. Kolmanskop became a ghost town in the red dunes desert and is loved by tourists who wander through the abandoned buildings filled with moving sand.
Luderitz is a quaint Namibian town with a very good harbor on the wild west coast. Founded in 1883, it started as a trading post – fishing and Guano harvesting were the main industries here until diamonds were discovered in 1909. It’s a port that developed near Shark Island, originally a ghastly concentration camp and today a campsite. The Luderitz museum and the town are named after Adolf Lüderitz, founder of the German South West Africa colony.
You may find Mineral Gypsum roses lying on the beach – beautiful, perfectly formed crystal rose-shaped structures are naturally created mainly from the mineral gypsum.
